I agree with you WeeSam, she is showing good leadership and I reckon most of us Aussies agree that she is doing a fine job. I must say that I have been surprised and pleased at the way our politicians here have been working together during this time. I hope it keeps up after all this is over. Most of us here have been keeping to the rules and doing what is needed. There will always be some dissidents but we are mostly law abiding folk. Here in Tassie we are doing okay, especially where I am in the North West of the state. Our defence force & Ausmat personnel did a great job in deep cleaning our local hospitals and we are glad that they are open again. Also thanks to the electrical workers who have been working repairing the power poles and restoring power because someone drove into one and took out the power for next 8 hours.
I hear they are in talks about opening up the border between Aus and NZ again. That would be a positive step forward.
It is good that our politicians have been (mostly) able to set everything aside to work together in a crisis. This shows good leadership. I know our Leader of the Opposition was very firm on that point at the beginning. Recently he decided to speak out against the government and bring politics back into it. Needless to say, he is no longer Leader of the Opposition. He really should have read the room better.
Looks like there will be protests in Melbourne tonight. I just hope they don't go off the deep end like the protesters are overseas.
I live in one of those places where things have gotten violent. My favorite stores are closed and boarded up. The one I rarely shop at anymore but where I get my glasses burned down Sunday night. We are under a curfew until this ends and I hope it ends soon.
Oh, crikey. Stay safe.
That's a worry, keep safe and stay home if you can. I know I made called a couple of friends from my 5 pm, turned out it was 2 am where I called. I never can get the time difference. Fortunately they were awake.
That's it! New Zealand's last case of Covid-19 has recovered, and the government has declared the country covid free, being more than 28 days since the last case of transmission occurred (two full cycles). Tomorrow, apart from boarder controls, life goes back to normal in NZ. Everything open, no masks required, no social distancing required. Guess I will be going back to the office, rather than my living room!
Wow! Way to go New Zealand!!
It does feel like a major victory. And to be able to go out without any fear is an amazingly good feeling.
Best yet, my boss says we will start back at the office next week, rather than tomorrow, so I have a few days to prepare myself for getting up early and going out in the middle of winter!

Yeah, I would need that also but I'm retired. And the last 6 years that I worked it was from home because I had moved from Virginia back to Kentucky to be close to my family and the company allowed me to continue working for them from home.
